Lopez and Ricky Set To Star In Viva Las Vegas

Diva JENNIFER LOPEZ and snake-hipped singer RICKY MARTIN are to star in a remake of ELVIS PRESLEY's hit movie VIVA LAS VEGAS.

Latin love God, Ricky will star as a Grand Prix racing driver - whilst co-star Lopez will play his reluctant girlfriend RUSTY MARTIN.

Filming is set to start in the autumn (01) but producers have yet to decide who will get top billing.

A Hollywood source revealed, "The script is being polished and updated, and Ricky and Jennifer have both agreed to do it. All that remains are contract negotiations - for example, who gets top billing? They're asking Ann-Margaret to make a cameo appearance and plan to start filming in the autumn. " (HJ/WNSSP/PDD)
